Hooray for the Graduate!

Hello crafty friends! It is April and that means graduation season is upon us! 
My daughter Brooke is graduating this month with her Bachelors in Social Work and I couldn't be more proud!

I am up on the  Kat Scrappiness  blog today and I have a very bright and colorful card to share with you. What better way to celebrate a graduate than with a gorgeous rainbow to show them how bright their future will be?

 Kat Scrappiness has a fun rainbow die called After the Rain  and it cuts out 7 individual arcs for your rainbow. I chose to only use 6 arcs for my rainbow in the interest of space but you could add one more arc and use any color palette you like.  I made a similar card previously with a pastel color scheme and it came out lovely!

To start off with I took a sheet of white card stock and cut out a panel using the largest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies and I stenciled on a beautiful cloud background for my rainbow. Once I was happy with how the clouds looked I began adding in my rainbow one arc at a time.

I wanted to add a couple of stitched clouds to my card so I used the Stitched Puffy Clouds and die cut 3 of the 4 different sizes to add around my card. I made sure to hang one cloud off the side of my card for a more organic look.

For the sentiment on my card I knew I wanted a big bold die cut in black and white so the Hooray with Shadow Die was the perfect addition. This die comes with 2 layers so you can cut out a shadow for your word and it was just what this card called for. I added a smaller sub-sentiment to make this a graduation card in black and white as well.

The only thing left to do was add some sparkle and shine so I reached for the 
Tear Shaped Water Droplets to decorate this pretty rainbow with. 

I also used the Embellishment Pick Up Tool and the Embellishment Sorting Tray to help me apply all of the clear droplets. These 2 tools make for such easy placement of embellishments and the embellishment tray is triangular which makes clean up a breeze. All those tiny droplets just fall back into the bag with ease because of the shape of the tray.

Here's one final peak at my card for today with all of the supplies used. I hope you'll check out all of the fun products in the  Kat Scrappiness store and make a rainbow card for that special someone who could use a happy colorful rainbow!
